Queer Camp Trilogy
U.S.A. / 22:18 / 2011-2018 / sound / colour & b/w / English
The Queer Camp Trilogy is a series of experimental films exploring the hidden dimensions of queer Japanese American wartime history. This trilogy, made up of Looking For Jiro (2011), Warning Shot (2016), and On the Line (2018), was inspired by first-generation Japanese Americans who were incarcerated by the US government during World War II. These subjects left subtle yet discernible traces of same-sex intimacy or gender nonconformity in the archive, despite the enormous pressure put upon Japanese Americans to accept their imprisonment quietly, prove their patriotic loyalty, and smile for Ansel Adams during their unlawful imprisonment. I approached their enigmatic artifacts through speculative modes of embodiment, witnessing, and dwelling as I tried to imagine how they endured the isolation, humiliation, and heteronormativity of the American concentration camps.
